i am looking for a new laptop.
Mostly i will only use it for playing a little Guildwars2, but i like having a laptop that dosent need to go all out to play my game.
Besides that, i need somthing stable since i am using it A LOT for my engineering study.

I was looking at the

Aspire V 15 Nitro VN7-591G-770E
Intel Core i7-4720HQ (4 x 2.60 GHz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M
8 GB DDR3 Memory
500 GB HDD + 8G SSHD

But then i read a lot of places that acer is shit and unstable as f*ck.

So i went and had a look at the

Spec:
Asus Zenbook Pro UX501JW
4k Screen
Intel i7 4750HQ
12 GB RAM
256GB SSD
1TB HDD
Nvidia Geforce GTX 960M

And at last to compare a little i had a look at the

Lenovo y50-70
Intel Core i7-4710HQ
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M
8 GB DDR3 Memory
1000 GB HDD + 8G SSHD

They all are so similar, but i read a lot of stuff about each brand.
Lenovo seems good enough though, but it is allmost 20% more expensive.

are the difference really that big in performance from these manufactors ?

And should i really stay away from the acer ?
The acer i can get pretty cheap, but they say the brand is shit
The Asus only gets complaints about GPU getting a little hot in the small case
The Lenovo dosent get much bad reports, but it is expensive.

Please lend me your wisdom guys :)

i think my budget would be 500 gbp/euro at total ?

please just bear in mind, there is no need for me to get the 1060 ect gpu since i dont really play a lot.
The most important part for me is the hdd space, ram and cpu since i need some power for when im in school.

When i get home i have my stationary to work on, but i need this when i travel forth and back from school evry day (5h total) and in school.

Yea, thats why i decided to get one of them.
I know ofc. that i could do well with some better, but for 500 i thought they would be okay.
